Answer:

#x = -72#

Explanation:

#x/-2 = 36#

To solve for the variable #x# we need to make #x# alone.

To do so, let's multiply both sides by #color(blue)(-2)#:
#x/-2 color(blue)(xx-2) = 36 quadcolor(blue)(xx-2)#

#x/cancel(-2) cancel(color(blue)(xx-2)) = 36 quadcolor(blue)(xx-2)#

So the answer is:
#x = -72#

Hope this helps!
